Today, YouTube is the largest video sharing websites in the digital world. Per day millions of people sharing millions of new videos on various topics. You can search any topic about your lifestyle, health, gaming, sports, study or anything that comes in your mind, you will get it on youtube. And when we find a beautiful video out there then we want to save on our phone. So we can watch it whenever we want, wherever we want, even without an internet connection.

But unfortunately, downloading Videos from YouTube using the official YouTube Android app is not possible. You can just watch those videos using internet connection. But the good news is, YouTube started a new service for all users called YouTube Red. By subscribing to youtube red, you can download videos from YouTube using the Smartphone or Tablet.

But there is a problem, YouTube Red is not available in many countries and you need to pay an Amount per month even if the service is available in on your country.

However, recently YouTube added a new feature on their Android App called Offline Video that allows saving videos on your device. But this feature is not available for all videos, also you can just download only a few of videos using this option.

Steps to download YouTube video using offline video option:

Step 1: Open the YouTube app on your Android device and search for “Offline Videos”.

Step 2: Click and open any videos that are eligible for downloading.

You can download these video (any videos from YouTube you want) using some 3rd party app. There are several YouTube video downloader apps available for free.
